Tumenjargal, 53 years old, is a widow who lives with her parents, daughters and niece in her old brick house on a plot of land in Ulaanbaatar, the capital city of Mongolia.

She made one part of her house into a grocery store where one of her daughters sells various kinds of food. Her elder daughter works at a private business entity.

The house they live in has deteriorated over the years and needs some serious repair. So she is requesting a loan of 6,000,000 MNT to purchase building and insulation materials such as planks, bricks, fiberglass and foam. Using those materials, she can repair and insulate her house because, during winter time, the family chills down to its core and she doesn't want her parents to get flu or any sickness.

The renovated house will enable the family to burn less coal, emit fewer pollutants and thereby contribute to efforts against air pollution. The borrower is a very hardworking individual who strives for a better future.

About Housing Loans

Many poor families cannot afford housing that meets their needs. When you make a housing loan on Kiva, you give people access to flexible capital to obtain or improve their homes. Better housing means better health, sanitation, and even educational outcomes for children. A house can also be much more for entrepreneurs who run businesses out of their homes. In this way, housing and small business loans on Kiva share a common purpose: to alleviate poverty and enable families to enjoy more stable lives.
